Cleveland police were searching Sunday for a man who they said killed an elderly man live on Facebook and bragged about having committed many other homicides.

The suspect, identified as Steve Stephens, is considered armed and dangerous, police said after the homicide in northeast Cleveland near the Lake Erie shore. The FBI was providing assistance, a spokeswoman told NBC News.

Police said Sunday that the man “broadcast the killing on Facebook Live and has claimed to have committed multiple other homicides which are yet to be verified.”

“There are no other victims that we know of,” Cleveland Police Chief Calvin Williams said at a news conference.

Authorities said the killing of the one confirmed victim, Robert Goodwin, 74, appeared to be random.
